For the record Truckin' and Sugar Mag are unlistenable due to the horns participation,where on Let It Grow they feel organic and very in the flow.The flute on WRS Prelude lends a nice delicate counterpoint and the horns along with the vocal on LIG create a an interesting blend.The band sounds inspired by the presence of the horns on this version and each member stands out at some point,there is some strange yodeling/vocal weirdness and interesting Jerry/Keith interplay.I thought the quiet contribution of the horns on Stella Blue was a natural and the rollicking vibe they added on Let Me Sing Your Blues Away a perfect fit,it's a shame Keith mangled the vocal on that so badly they stopped doing it,Jerry should have taken over the vocal,that song had such a great slinky groove.
